Summary At the age of sixty, Cory Taylor is dying of melanoma-related brain cancer. Her illness is no longer treatable: she now weighs less than her neighbors retriever. As her body weakens, she describes the experiencethe vulnerability and strength, the courage and humility, the anger and acceptance of knowing she will soon die. Written in the space of a few weeks, in a tremendous creative surge, this powerful and beautiful memoir is a clear-eyed account of what dying teaches: Taylor describes the tangle of her feelings, remembers the lives and deaths of her parents, and examines why she would like to be able to choose the circumstances of her death. Taylors last words offer a vocabulary for readers to speak about the most difficult thing any of us will
